Mind on the Run just posted up Richie Havens’ awesome cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams”, which is just as good as you’d imagine it’d be, and it reminded me of his even more awesome cover of Lamont Dozier’s “Going Back to My Roots”, from the same record– a jam I drove my wife insane with through endless replays on drives between DC and New York a couple of springs ago.

Such a killer.
